Guilford Green is a silvery green that brings a positive energy into whatever room it is used. This colour ties everything together and gives a room character. It can be used practically any room of the home, living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, it doesn’t matter. It is timeless, elegant and works well  in traditional and contemporary living spaces.

When applied in living rooms and other entertaining areas, Guilford Green makes guests feel welcomed and encourages stimulating conversation. It is natural, warm and calming but at the same time fiery and intense. 

Guilford Green is an organic neutral that can be paired with other like shades to create a monochromatic colour scheme. Now you may think that using all colours that are so closely related, will make a space look dull and boring however, it does the complete opposite, it actually makes the colour seem three-dimensional and the room looks unique and crisp.

Mix Guilford Green with any of its like shades/complimentary colours  including Harbor Town, Spring Meadow, Maidenhair Fern and Mesquite.  All of these colours fall on the lighter and darker sides of Guilford Green, giving the right amount of contrast to develop a charming colour arrangement.

Guilford Green (HC-116) comes in three varieties of Benjamin Moore interior paint; Regal Select Interior, Aura Interior and Ben Interior. All of these types are self-priming and fade and mildew resistant. They also come in different sheens including Satin/Eggshell, Flat/Matte and Semi-gloss.
